How I made a very simple NewLook lined shift dress

I am still making lots of clothes for my "birthday holiday", and with time running out they have to be quick to make.
I came across this NewLook pattern recently, and as I do like a shift dress decided this would be ideal for me to run up a couple of dresses with fairly quickly.

This white with a black stripe jersey was in my stash and I have been wanting to use it for ages. It is a bit see-through so it needed to be lined.I also had a piece of very fine lingerie fabric in my stash so it was ideal for the lining.
you might think that lining a dress is complicated, not so, it is only like putting facings in. Adding a cap sleeve makes it even easier.
